19th Century Antique Heriz Serapis Persian Rug
This 19th Century Antique Persian Serapis Heriz Rug displays the finest grade of Heriz. In terms of design, weave and color and this rug has it all. At the center of the rich red field a cruciform medallion in blue-black and ivory floats freely with a lavish interior embellishment of sinuous vines. Blue-green cornerpieces fill out the field with elaborate arabesque detail. Grand finials and dynamic branches are found in the intervening red ground. A complex "turtle" vine scroll border set within a blue-black ground creates an elegant and dramatic frame. Condition: This is not a perfect rug. I considered this and I have priced it accordingly. If it were in mint condition, it would retail for about $26,000+. Please do the research so you can understand that this is a great price for this rug and I am almost certain you will not find another one anywhere near this price There is no dry rot. It does shows signs of wear that are consummerate with age, none being fatal, mostly in the area next to the center. Dimensions: 10'7" x 11'10"
